McDonald's helps workers get food stamps.

McDonald's helps workers get food stamps

Quote:
Nancy Salgado, who has worked at a Chicago McDonald's for 10 years and makes $8.25 an hour, asked the McResource representative a number of questions related to getting assistance to pay for her heating bill, her groceries and her sister's medical expenses. Salgado told the representative that she was recording the call for her sister.

The helpline operator never asked Salgado how much she made per hour, and how many hours per week she worked beyond the fact that she was a full-time employee. But she said that Salgado "definitely should be able to qualify for both food stamps and heating assistance."

The representative then pointed her toward a number of resources in Chicago, such as food pantries and a program that would help cover some of her heating bill. She said she would email her specific phone numbers and programs.

The operator also explained that the McResource line is available to help McDonald's workers who need help navigating the process of getting public assistance. The helpline's phone number is posted in fliers at many McDonald's locations.
Nice of McDonalds to help get its employees on the gov't teet.

Sam's club does all that and still pays a minimum wage. If the minimum wage is increased, will Sam's Club prices go up astronomically?

I'll answer for you, because I know you can't critically think.

No, because Costco won't rise prices (their wages won't go up) and therefore any rise in price from Sam's will mean more customers for Costco.

It's almost like you guys have no idea how capitalism works.

Hobby Lobby doesn't do that, and still pays higher than a minimum wage, are their prices astronomically higher than competitors?

If the minimum wage goes up, will hobby lobby's competitors rise prices equal to increase in wages... no, because Hobby Lobby won't have to increase prices.

The bottom line is:

If you can't pay the minimum wage and sell and product at the market cost, the free market will go "Free market B@@ch" knock you down, and a better business will replace them.

Not at all what I said. If you want me to break it down for you I will. You are a stupid ignoramous with your head so far up your ass, that you need a window in your stomach to see where you are going. I know what's going on in the real world, and I have a little story for your communist ass. A very big company that I used to work for has put on a 3 year wage freeze, and has taken all benefits away from the employees, and yes that includes FMLA, health insurance, and sick leave. But you still think we should have a $15 per hour minimum wage???? You are as dumb a person as I've ever dealt with. You don't seem to understand that the companies will protect their bottom line, no matter what. They won't pay the wage increase, but it will come from some where else, whether it's employee benefits getting the ax to make up the difference, or increased consumer prices. These companies are owned by individuals, and their sole purpose is to provide goods, and/or services, and make money. It's funny how the fast food places around here all have comparable prices, yet you think it's only driven by what the consumer will pay. You seem to forget that they wouldn't sell these products at those prices, if they weren't making money. Raising minimum wage, and all other wages would affect all fast food joints in pretty much the same way, so we would see a dramatic increase on the prices of all the products. Get out of your communist ivory tower, and see what's going on in the real world.

Full time workers are living in Poverty. I've told you before, your single measurement of a single person household who never gets sick and never takes a day off from work is 1) not a measurement for whether full time workers are living in poverty and 2) still qualifies for food stamp, because food stamps based on monthly income, not yearly. I told you that, you have ignored it. You are a special kind of willful ignorant.

Get out the thread you pathetic liar. And it is amazing you still have no idea what communism means.

You are lucky BEP showed up, otherwise you would easily be the stupidest person in the thread.

You ever going to actually answer the original question... or are you just going to look for reasons to keep full time workers dependent on the government?

Why shouldn't the minimum wage increase with inflation?

Jesus...that's what you came up with even after editing it? Pretty sad. You're just trying to move those goalposts again to hide your bumbling stupidity. Typical.

Food stamps don't take your full year income and divide by 12 because they ever care about your yearly income. Why? around 50 percent of people on food stamps aren't on it for a full year. They only look at the most recent monthly incomes.
Provide a link or your comments are worthless. You've shown that you lie, miscalculate and misrepresent so there isn't any reason to take you at your word.

I've told you before to stop being stupid, and you keep coming back with you stupid. Amazing.
Once again, that's hilarious. You can't do math. You have no reading comprehension. You barely seem to be able to perceive events around you. I couldn't give any less of a shit about your opinion regarding my intelligence.


Quote:
Also, if your "der de der full time worker isn't living in poverty" even gets sick once and takes time off, has to go to a funeral, or even, gasp, wants to have a vacation.. guess what, completely under the poverty line.

You better add that to your calculation "Full time worker living in a single person hold is only above the poverty line if the person never misses an hour of work every week all year. And they have to work every Holiday." Seams reasonable, to a stupid person.

Plus, whether or you get food stamps is on a long list of government help minimum wage workers are dependent upon the government to receive because their jobs underpay them, expecting the government to pick up the cost of labor tab.

You believe in socializing losses instead of the company and consumer shouldering the full cost of paying for labor. If labor cannot afford food and shelter on a wage, it is a below market wages.

I look forward to you ignoring this to rant something stupid.
Blah blah blah...so you admit you lied?

Here you go Collective Iguana.

From the California SNAP application website:

https://www.c4yourself.com/c4yourself/helpFAQ.jsp


Earned income
: One paystub that matches the amount you put on your application, a copy of your last tax return, or a signed letter from your employer that shows the gross amount of your check and the date.


Hey, look at that, SNAP will take a copy of your last tax return for income verification. You know...proof of your annual salary so that you can verify your monthly income...which would be your yearly income divided by twelve. Your turn. Prove that SNAP doesn't use yearly income as a verification of eligibility.

Hey, look at that, it also requires your pay check to gauge what you are actually earning over a couple week period.

Because they look at what you have earned over the last few months, not some equation based on what you might earn if you work every hour of every forty hour week.

Stop being stupid.
